When recruiting star free agents in the NBA, it’s apparently important to help said star envision himself playing in a new situation.

The Bulls are meeting with Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday, the first of recruiting visits that will also include Houston, Dallas and the Lakers, before a final sitdown with Phil Jackson and the Knicks.

The team isn’t leaving anything to chance, and has adorned the United Center with some signage tying Anthony to the Bulls organization.

Well look what just popped up at the United Center... #Melo #Bulls

The Bulls’ recruiting pitch to Carmelo is already underway. This is the message on the side of the United Center.

Joakim Noah was reportedly in attendance as well, no doubt to continue to aid in the recruiting process.
